Still having problems with WEP rekeying

I still can't get WEP rekeying to work, EAP-TLS and EAP-TTLS work fine with
static WEP keys, but when I switch on WEP rekeying my station can not
authenticate. I am using a Dlink DWL-520+ in my Windows XP station, and a
Prism 2 card in my Linux server running hostapd.

Can anyone help, could it be firmware issues on one of the cards etc?

Thanks,
Ken

Here is an extract from my hostapd.conf:

ieee8021x=1
#minimal_eap=0
eap_message=hello
wep_key_len_broadcast=13
#wep_key_len_unicast=13
wep_rekey_period=300
eapol_key_index_workaround=1

Here is an extract from my hostap log:
